So the pacman.conf setting would be:
Server = https://asm0dey.github.io/arch-kodi-devel-builder/$arch
I advise using a more descriptive name for the repository instead of
Aside for that, pacman only cares about being told the name of the .db,
and then it downloads that directly (by concatenating the Server
directive, a "/", the repository name, and ".db"), getting all other
information by using a database parser, not via regular expressions on
an HTML file.
